“Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.” — St. Francis de Sales
Today’s meditation session is titled The Secret of Soft Power.
Today’s meditation is about soft power and how the kindness, respect, curiosity, and love in our heart is a more powerful force of good than the hard power we see around us. Most of us have learned that to be powerful and succeed, we need to use force, intimidation, and dominance. But this hard power is always based on temporary advantages and therefore it hides fear underneath it.
Soft power, on the other hand, comes from an ever-present awareness of our Being that supports and connects us all. From this place of understanding, compassion, and receptivity, we can remain in our strength and empowerment while we find common ground and mutually agreeable solutions to life’s conflicts and challenges.
